    Firstly, when you mean it got hit by Panda, do you mean you got a penalty and lost your SERP's or you got sanboxed (deindexed from Google)? ​

    since backlinking to the specific domain was what angered the godfather...oops...i mean google then i would think you can migrate to a new domain, change the site a bit so it's not exactly the same, and then proceed with your new and improved backlinking strategy

    i'm no expert but i don't think google would permanently ban good content based on (what they perceive to be) previous seo mistakes made on a different domain

    No formal penalty (didnt get a message on webmaster tools) and its still indexed but on Oct 14 my position in the SERPS fell severely and I lost 70% of traffic
